The Pursgloves of Tottenham - [TOTT]

A settlement started here on the line of Ermine Street during the Roman occupation and by Domesday it was a small village.  In 1894 the village became an Urban Borough and by 1965 it was included as part of the London Borough of Harringay.

By 1840 the railways had started to facilitate the expansion of this area for accommodation and commercial use.  All Hallows church is a Norman building and it is the oldest standing structure in the Borough.
